are you the designer? - I'm writing a column about great use of paint and would love to use this photo. Are you the designer? I can be emailed at directly. I'm on a tight deadline, so an email by Monday (the 15th) would be great if you're interested! Thanks. Kelly Taylor

Flooring material - Can you tell me what flooring was used? It works very well against the vibrant colors.

Had I finished reading the article... I would have known they're acid-stained cement. Can you tell me how pleased you are with this flooring? How is it holding up? Is the maintenance difficult?

The photos were taken when the place was already 5 years old. The floors have held up beautifully.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"Our decorating philosophy is to be lively yet restful at the same time," says Hidley. With this in mind, Svoboda-Spanbock designed the home with color, comfort and utility, using bold hues and an abundance of built-in storage space in this custom shelving.Shelving paint: Bittersweet, Pratt & Lambert
Laura Gaskill added this to Tile Floors Help a Hot Home Chill Out
Try stained concrete in a modern space. The stained concrete shown here is poured, but a similarly modern effect can be achieved with sleek concrete tiles. Colorful tile stair risers in this home add an eclectic touch and pick up some of the color used elsewhere.
